She might be 66-years-old but Dame Helen Mirren has got what it take to beat the youngsters at their own game. The Prime Suspect actress was voted top bod in an LA Fitness hot bodies poll. The gym chain asked 2,000 people who they thought had the best figure and Mirren was the surprise winner.
Dame Helen beat the likes of Cheryl Cole, Jennifer Lopez and swimwear model Kelly Brook to take the crown. Yep, that's right people, Dame Helen beat Kelly Brook. Go Hels!
Tony Orme, marketing director at LA Fitness, said, “Helen Mirren's victory in our Best Body poll illustrates how, when it comes to body maintenance and well-being, age really is nothing but a number.
"It's great to see the public celebrating bodies of all shapes and sizes, and proving that you really can look fabulous over 40 and 50.
"LA Fitness' summer fitness campaign is all about championing people to get the body they desire and to be happy in their own skin, and the results prove it's never too late to start getting in shape."
There you go. It’s never too late to get fit like Mirren. Just put those biccies down now and say no to cream cakes. Maybe get yourself a role in a stage play where you have to get naked in front of loads of people. That’s bound to kick start any diet…
New daddy David Beckham topped the bloke’s poll with Bond star Daniel Craig coming second (that beach/ blue shorts scene lives on…) and Johnny Depp rolled in at a respectable third.
